CluB: A Cluster Based Framework for Mitigating Distributed Denial of Service Attacks
Paper i proceeding, 2011
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are threats not only for the
direct targets but also for the core of the network. They are also hard to
detect in advance, hence methods to deal with them need to be proactive.
By building on earlier work and improving on distribution of control aspects,
we propose a Cluster Based framework, which is called CluB, to mitigate DDoS attacks;
balances the effectiveness-overhead trade-off by addressing the issue of
granularity of control in the network.
CluB, can collaborate with different routing policies in the network,
including contemporary datagram options.
We estimate the effectiveness of the framework and also study a set of
factors for tuning the granularity of control.
